8 months, leg braces and hoping to walk...

Danny is eight months old. Time is flying and I am missing those early days. I wish I could go back in time and ENJOY those days. Do you miss the time when your baby was a newborn? I feel like becoming preggo again just to re-live those early days lol.

Update about Danny's leg: As some of you know, Danny has recently been diagnosed with mild contracture in the right leg. Apart from physiotherapy he needs to sleelp in full length leg braces at night. But he refuses to sleep with the braces on! I have tried to put on the braces when he is asleep but after a couple of hours he wakes up crying. .I am at my wits end. I am so worried that without these braces he may never walk. Any suggestion. tips will be really appreciated...

He is trying to pull up to stand but unable to. he is not that normal? He has met all his milestones, in fact when it came to sitting without support, he was doing that 5 months!! and at 7 he started to sit up from sleeping position. Am paranoid right? :)

It's hard I understand. It is something that takes some adjustment to get used to it. Children are more resilient than most people think, I have been thru much medically with my son and I feel for you. The only suggestion I can say is listen to the doctors, get second opinions if needed, but always listen to your heart.
